In terms of interface, the video report window has been greatly improved by @rigelk. As a reminder, the video reporting feature is accessible if you have an account and are logged in. It is therefore only possible to report videos that you see from the instance where you are registered: either because this video is hosted on your instance, or because your instance is federated to the instance where the video was uploaded.
No it doesn't. You can't deploy multiple PeerTube nodes behind a load balancer.
As far as we know, there are 3 limitations to handle a large amount of users in PeerTube:
In the <a href="https://framablog.org/2021/01/07/peertube-v3-its-a-live-a-liiiiive/" target="_blank">PeerTube v3 release blogpost</a>, we announced that we wouldn't resort to crowdfunding to finance PeerTube's development in 2021.
Bandwidth: can be mitigated using <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://docs.joinpeertube.org/admin-following-instances?id=instances-redundancy">PeerTube redundancy system</a> and cache servers that serve video static files in front of your PeerTube instance
You're right. PeerTube 1.0 is not the perfect tool, far from it. And we never promised that this version 1.0 would be a tool that would include all the features corresponding to all cases.
In the different tests we've had, we have managed to keep lag between 30s to 1mn. To our knowledge, peer-to-peer live broadcasting will induce an incompressible lag between the streamer and the audience. Ultimately, this lag will depend on the server charge (how many live streams are happening at the same time) and bandwidth.

"It's outrageous and unconscious: you're releasing a PeerTube version that doesn't contain the necessary tools to effectively manage videos claimed by rights holders, or to effectively manage the issue of online harassment in comments, or to effectively manage monetization through advertising, or to (insert here your request to PeerTube). It will never work! What do you intend to do about it?"
In the last few months, we have created 2 new plugins:

If you notice performance problems or a bottleneck at your scale, don't hesitate to <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/issues/new/choose">create an issue</a> to discuss it.
In the meantime, if you try and test <a href="https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/releases/tag/v3.0.0-rc.1">Peertube v3 RC</a> and its live feature, please be sure to give us some feedback on the code respository issues or <a href="https://framacolibri.org/c/peertube/38">on our forum</a>.
Framasoft tries to make around 4 major releases per year. Releasing a new PeerTube version takes a lot of our time, so we cannot change this release cycle.
In the meantime, the PeerTube federation has grown: today, more than 300 instances broadcast more than 70,000 videos, with nearly 2 million cumulated views. We remind you that the only official website we maintain around PeerTube is <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://joinpeertube.org/en">https://joinpeertube.org/en</a> and that we bear no responsibility on any other site that may be published.
There is no LTS version: only the latest stable version of PeerTube is supported by Framasoft.
In the meantime,we hope you will <a href="https://joinpeertube.org/roadmap" target="_blank">share and support this new JoinPeertube roadmap</a>.
If you want to test the PeerTube develop branch, we provide <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://builds.joinpeertube.org/nightly/">nightly builds</a>.
In the next version of the software, each PeerTube instance administrator will be able to choose to use one of these index engines to allow specific searches in the search bar of its instance.
We <strong>try</strong> to keep compatibility with the latest minor version (2.3.1 with 2.2 for example). Unfortunately we don't have enough resources to keep compatibility with other versions.
In this new version, we have made it possible for plugins to <strong>define external authentication methods</strong> and developed 3 authentication plugins:

Remember that PeerTube has only <a href="#who-is-working-on-peertube">one full time developer</a> and a small handful of very involved volunteers. It is not a product developed by a start-up with a full time team and significant financial support.
So if you feel that PeerTube does not currently meet your needs, it's simple: don't use it right now. We remind you that we don't make money developing PeerTube, and if we obviously hope for its success, Framasoft does not depend on it to continue its activities.
<a href="#what-are-the-peertube-features-for-administrators">Yes it does!</a> Since the first stable release of PeerTube in October 2018, <strong>every release</strong> added or improved moderation features:
Linked together, these three features makes it easy to host videos on the server side, while remaining practical, ethical and fun for the internet users.
<strong>PeerTube 1.1</strong> added bulk actions in the admin users table and instance/account muting;
Instance administrators can now <strong>choose how many simultaneous import jobs</strong> they support (whether these imports are realized through a URL or a torrent). This prevents big instances from having long waiting lists.
<strong>PeerTube 1.2</strong> added the ability to unfederate a video on blacklist; the notification system now shows reports, and new users;
<strong>PeerTube 1.3</strong> added the possibility for admins to automatically quarantine new videos for new/untrusted users until a moderator reviews it. The instance's followers management was also reworked: UI is improved, follows can be denied;
<strong>PeerTube 1.4</strong> added a plugin system, and made sure plugins can for instance automatically blacklist videos or reject comments based on any rule (similar to Pleroma MRF);
Interactivity with users is one of the recipes to success on videos platforms. Interacting with Internet users and responding to comments helps content producers to build an audience. That's why this latest version includes enhancements that help video makers to interact more with their viewers.
<strong>PeerTube 2.0</strong> setup now asks the admin to answer questions regarding their moderation policy and dedication to it. Make a feature to automatically follow a public index of PeerTube instances part of core PeerTube, instead of leaving admins to script it themselves. This allows instance administrators to automatically follow instances of a "follow list" of their choice; a list which is self-hostable, so that communities can grow at their own pace;
Introducing SepiaSearch!
<strong>PeerTube 2.1</strong> added an <em>internal</em> privacy mode to videos (such videos won't be shared outside of the instance), and added quick access to moderation tools below the comments and hooks to create registration plugins (geoblocking or captchas for example); some third-party plugins already demonstrate this ability. This release also put emphasis on describing moderation features within the interface: warnings for features that might increase moderation work like autofollow, and descriptions to the action dropdowns.
<strong>PeerTube 2.2</strong> greatly improved video abuses management (search, abuses display, actions on the video or account etc), added moderation hooks and helpers in the plugins API and Framasoft developed an experimental <em>Auto mute</em> plugin based on public lists.
<strong>PeerTube 2.3</strong> improved the report modal and added predefined reasons selection. This version made it possible to delete all the comments of an account and Framasoft developed an experimental <em>Auto block videos</em> plugin based on public lists.
<strong>PeerTube 2.4</strong> added ability to report accounts and comments, a messaging system between the local reporter of an abuse and moderators, and an abuse management view for users.
<strong>PeerTube 3.0</strong> added a dedicated view to manage comments of the instance (list, filter, remove in bulk etc).
No. In October 2018, on an average instance federating with ~200 instances and indexing ~16000 videos, only ~200 videos are tagged as NSFW (i. e. the content is sensitive, which could be something else than pornography). Therefore, they represent only ~1% of all the videos.
PeerTube developers are committed to develop and improve moderation tools to make instances always easier to manage. We welcome you to take part in discussions to <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/issues">help ongoing efforts</a> in that direction or <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/issues/new">suggest new ones</a>!
Technical
March 2018 thus represents the birth of the PeerTube federations: the more this software will be used and supported, the more people will use it and contribute to it, and the faster it will evolve towards a concrete alternative to platforms such as YouTube.
PeerTube uses ActivityPub because this federation protocol is recommended by the W3C and is also used by other projects like the social network <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://joinmastodon.org/">Mastodon</a>.
With more than 100 000 hosted videos, viewed more than 6 millions times and 20 000 users, PeerTube is the decentralized free software alternative to videos platforms developed by Framasoft
It has been a very busy 6 months, but we have completed our roadmap and just released version 3 of PeerTube!
IPFS is a great technology, but it still seems too young for streaming large files. The PeerTube P2P system based on well established protocols like HTTP and WebRTC, and the <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://docs.joinpeertube.org/admin-following-instances?id=instances-redundancy">redundancy system</a> are more easy for us to use and to maintain.
DTube does not seem open source, because publishing only compiled code hinders freedom of modification.
It implements all stretch goals we planned in our crowdfunding:
With PeerTube, chose <strong>your hosting company and the rules you believe in.</strong>
It is now possible to display comments according to 2 criteria: the most recent first (default display) or most replies first.
Since the first stable release of PeerTube in October 2018, <strong>every release</strong> added or improved moderation features:
PeerTube does not impose any remuneration model. This is the choice we have made, and others (like DTube) have made other choices. So it's up to you to see what suits you.
